5 Ways to Use Gui Pi Tang

Inspired by the ancient herbal remedy Gui Pi Tang, Mental Tranquility is a non-habit-forming herbal formula comprised of 12 sustainably sourced herbs.  This formula supports the spleen and heart. In Chinese medicine theory, the spleen promotes mental acuity, helping us think, focus, concentrate and study. The heart, associated with Spirit, maintains cognitive function and sleep.  Taxing the spleen without nourishing it - typically by working too hard without the appropriate amount of rest - can result in overthinking, sleeplessness, and anxiousness.  

Mental Tranquility is a powerhouse that keeps the body’s energy and organs operating optimally. Here are five reasons to keep Mental Tranquility on hand.

1) For Better, More Restful Sleep

Do you ever wake up in the middle of the night with a “monkey mind”?  As your thoughts kick into high gear, do they keep you awake and fretful? Lack of sleep not only leaves you tired and unfocused during the day, improper rest can lead to illness.  This formula can transform your sleep, as it has for several customers (just take a look at the reviews). Sip this non-habit-forming concoction before going to bed for a peaceful, uninterrupted sleep. One customer writes:

“Mental Tranquility is the best calming sleep aide! Easy to use, mixes in water great (with a nice effervescent froth). Even tastes great! Helps me rest through the night—even through my challenging 3 am wake-ups. I fall right back asleep. No drowsiness in the morning.”

To help you sleep through the night, we recommend starting with one dose about an hour before bed.  

2) As a Study Aid

There’s a reason Acupuncture students call this the “study formula”.  While western students have been known to pop an Adderall to help them stay focused, Chinese medicine students turn to Gui Pi Tang to help boost focus and recall (and, as mentioned above, instead of keeping you awake and anxious, it will actually help you sleep better when you’re ready!).  One of our student ambassadors, Becca Ur, invited us to share her story about how she uses this powerful blend for mental recall - you can read more here.  

Since Gui Pi Tang is used for so much more than sleep, it can be taken throughout the day whenever you're looking for some extra focus.

3) To Promote Fertility

Dr. Eric Karchmer, Co-Founder and Chief Medicine Officer at DAO Labs, often uses Gui Pi Tang with his patients who have breakthrough bleeding during their menstrual cycles.  This can happen when the Qi is weak due to stress.  He recommends taking one dose of Mental Tranquility daily after bleeding ends to help rebuild the Qi, and stop just after ovulation occurs.  

4) For Postpartum Support

Giving birth is exciting for any mother. However, childbirth and caring for an infant can be exhausting, making postpartum recovery a challenge. Childbirth takes a lot of energy and breastfeeding is an additional demand; baby’s feedings don’t usually mesh with mother’s regular sleep cycle. 

Proper rest and diet are essential to any new mother, but there are times when a woman needs an additional boost. When taken in tandem with our Women's Formula as a part of our PostPartum BundleMental Tranquility can help smooth postpartum recovery. Mental Tranquility is an excellent aid for managing disrupted sleep, vaginal discharge and spotting, and the baby blues.  We recommend taking 1 dose of Women's Formula in the morning, and 1 dose of Mental Tranquility in the evening.

5) When You’re Feeling Anxious

In today’s crazy world, anxiousness is almost always lurking around the corner. Short-term bouts of mental unrest are normal, but when it lingers it can interfere with your sleep and overall health. Unchecked, anxiousness can throw off your Yin/Yang harmony, which is necessary to keep your universal energy or Qi flowing smoothly.  One customer writes:

"Overall great remedy!!!  My husband has been taking it for a month twice a day and he is been sleeping better, and his anxiety during the day is better. Thank you." 

Powerful Herbs

Because it’s non-habit forming and won't make you drowsy, you can drink this formula during the day to help relieve stress or for mental clarity, and again in the evening to help you sleep through the night.

Chinese herbs are powerful, but they only work if you take them consistently. Our customers rave about how good our formulas taste, and how easy it is to just add water and drink on the go (check out the reviews!). We also back them with a 100% happiness guarantee to ensure you're satisfied with the results.
